The aspiration of resilient systems is to cope with all kinds of changes. Therefore it combines both agile or flexible and robust properties. In order to access the resilience of production systems, the determination of its sensitive parameters is imperative. For this purpose, this paper ascertains main levers influencing the productivity of manufacturing and assembly systems. Basis for all production processes is the production program representing the customer demand. The production program

Through intervening in case of any kind of dissipation and disturbances it adjusts the resource supply. It is assumed that the factors characterizing the production program exhibit varying impact on the production processes. Thus individual tasks of production planning and control are investigated in order to reveal interactions related to sensitive and robust parameters. These factors are characterized by means of regression analysis. Subsequently, requirements regarding the decision making process and decision support systems are determined. An adequate information flow analysis as regards the tasks of production planning and control reveals the dependencies of the current configuration of a production system. For this purpose, a sensitivity analysis distinguishes sensitive from robust aspects and estimates the quantity of their impact.
